Wine, wine, wine.....

Our area in NY has many, many wineries within an hour drive.  Every year we try to get to the Finger Lakes or Thousand Islands area to partake in some "wine tasting" and to restock the wine rack. 

A local winery, about a 5 minute drive from our home, is the Greenwood Winery, with great food and an outdoor party every Friday evening - - That is if spring and summer ever arrive to Central NY!!

This is a great Dali quote on the wall of their restaurant:

This year, while in Ohio, my daughter introduced me to Stella Rosa Peach Wine, from Italy:

This will be my summer "go to" wine, it is light and refreshing, somewhat like a wine cooler!

  1. Nice, Patti, that one sounds good! I like your blog design - it's new, right?

    1. reworked my header last month - needed something simple! THX!

  2. I love a sweet wine...we have several wineries around here, too.

  3. I just found your blog through Poofing the Pillows. I am not a huge wine drinker...although I've tried to be:) I finally developed a taste for moscato. There is one wine that I really like though...Coco d' Vine. It's a chocolate wine and so yummy. I've never tried a peach wine but that sounds really good, especially since I live in the Peach State! I'd like to invite you to visit my blog I've begun writing again after a long absence.

  4. How fun to have wineries so close by Patti! We I go to California I love to visit a winery, makes a fun excursion and always a learning experience. Cheers!

  5. I loved my taste of your local wine. How nice it’s so close and there’s an outdoor party every Friday night. Sounds like a good way to spend a Friday. Your Italian sounds so delicious and perfect for summer. Enjoy......

  6. Local wine tasting is always fun. Seeing the beautiful countryside and of course tasting. The peach wine sounds perfect for a hot summer day.

  7. I had Stella Rosa in Italy!!!!!!! Every afternoon with apperitivo !!!!!! Oh what glorious memories that brings back!! And boy oh boy do I ever need fun thoughts this morning!!!

  8. That wine sounds delicious....too bad I can't drink it! Too many sulfites or sulfates :-(
